Our experience
This is our first time to take part in such an international competition-Cyber Fair. At the beginning, we don’t know how to choose a subject, because there are eight categories. After discussion, we choose historical landmark. Next, we assign tasks to individual, some is in charge of taking photos, some collects materials, some classifies information and etc. Everyday, they sort and type materials in the computer classroom in the noon, when other students are playing on playground. After one month preparation, we begin to design web pages.we input our collecting material and framework of website on internet and transmit to Miss He(a staff in Town and Talent Technologies), who agree with our view point. However, the material about scenery of Huangyuan County is too diverse, without focus. We are suggested to pay attention on one aspect-Shehuo. Then, we reassign task on individual and finish material collection in one month. In the process of making web pages, we have learned a lot beyond textbooks.

Our Project Sound Bite
We have got a better knowledge of Shehuo's history. The activity has enhanced our teamwork spirit and improved our communicating and interpersonal abilities. We have learnt a lot about communication with others. Although the process of research is harsh, we know that there is no harvest without sowing. The sweet fruit comes only with hard work. We have also gained the valuable experiences of interacting with others; this ability will be a long-life benefit for us. By working together on the project, we have a fresh knowledge about ourselves. We not only see the merits of others, but also realize the strength of ourselves. With a common goal, we learn to "respect, communicate, be considerate and understanding", and we come to understand the meaning of "humility, contribution, agreeableness and gratefulness."
